Banner Elk is a beautiful area in the Blue Ridge Mountains. This home was built for one of the founding families of Avery County. It was built in 1864. It is located on 2.04 acres in Banner Elk, North Carolina. The home needs updating, but the price isn’t too far off for that area. There is hardwood flooring underneath carpeting. Considering the location, would make a great bed and breakfast!! Four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and 3,955 square feet. $335,000

From the Zillow listing:


Fantastic location in Banner Elk, just a few minutes from Diamond Creek, Artisanal, and all the shops, restaurants, and theater that Banner Elk has to offer! This large historic home was built by some of Avery County’s founding families. Home needs updating and major renovations but features spacious rooms, up to three fireplaces with renovations, some original hardwood flooring, and tall ceilings for the era. Would be perfect for a bed and breakfast or a restaurant.  Acreage is basically level with easy year round access and gorgeous mature trees.
